Other topics

  • Clément Foucault has a solution for thick lines on macOS. He wants to keep it low profile for now for some reason.
  • Static override proposal from Alexander Gavrilov https://developer.blender.org/T72062
  • Alexander Gavrlov have patches for review by both developers and rggers:
    • D6264 and D6297 are small and need review from Campbell Barton and Sybren Stüvel correspondingly
    • D3837 and D4994 are the bigger old ones, for Campbell Barton and Bastien Montagne to look into, but at less priority, since they are old anyway.
    • D3837 needs testing and feedback from riggers - so far I’ve got some ‘may be useful’ feedback based on the description from Demeter Dzadik and Ivan Cappiello, but no actual real world testing feedback
